  1. What a great gathering of the Portland arts community. The DIY/Etsy community was out in full force and the energy in the room was high and the artists were engaged. I saw some familiar faces from the OPA as well as Portland Open Studios and met many artist/sellers from the etsy.com group. We got some great insight into the ins and outs of etsy and now we are ready to dive back in and get our shops open. The PdX etsy team had great ideas and an OPA team has some potential.
